diskurs 04 ° festival for young performing arts

From October 12th to 17th diskurs 04, the 20th volume of diskurs, festival for young performing arts, will take place in Giessen, Germany.

15 artists and collectives from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Slovenia will show their performance, dance, music and installation work.

We welcome you to a week of experimental approaches on our three stages, moderated and informal discussions in the festival cafe, and of course to our Hope and Glamour Party nights.

diskurs 04 developes structures that encourage cooperation and communication among and with the artists. Daily discussions about the projects will give the possibility to reflect upon artist's work and ask for strategy, impulse and motivation of artistic production.

With the festival diskurs starts the third phase of the exploration of HOPE. After a series of lectures in spring and a double laboratory at the beginning of October, the performances of the festival will show various approaches to the topic.
